I have been waiting for this to come out since it was announced! To be honest, I was hesitant about Gal Gadot playing Diana Prince, only because in my mind, Wonder Woman is Lynda Carter (see I am old school like that). Minor Spoilers ahead!

I promise you, I walked out of the theater tonight, invigorated and motivated. Oh, and maybe added another woman celebrity to my woman crush list (it’s okay – we can look up to other women). It should be noted that  Gal did a good deal of her own freaking stunts in this movie. So, BAD A*** is an understatement.

I’m glad that this movie gave us the back story to Wonder Woman. I find it important to connect with the character, especially in a “comic” type film. How else do you grasp the audience. I liked learning about her “heritage” and that, she really was a princess, shielded from the ‘bad world.’ I mean, why do you think everyone loves Captain America (besides the fact that he is hot – per the actor)? It’s because we saw him from the beginning. The same with Iron Man (Yes – yes I am making Marvel references in a DC Movie review), and the same with Batman. You connected with the hero, heroine, the character.

I want you guys to know, I HONESTLY did not like Gal as Wonder Woman, initially. I mean, I watched her in F&F and was like…”meh”. She’s cute, but where is the badassery? In my mind, I didn’t have an alternate, but I didn’t want it to be her. When I watched her in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, I was still skeptical. So, I instagram stalked her for a few days (recently). Yea, I’m #TeamGal.

It’s full of action from the get go. The action sequences were well choreographed. Like, you want to be there to train to be an Amazon Warrior too. Diana’s story is great. I do like how her mother told her that she would never yield the “GodKiller” sword. Then it’s like she made it her life mission. Diana is super doe-eyed after meeting Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) and his mission to try to end the war. When I say doe-eyed, I mean naive.

When she finally gets to the front line. It goes down hard. I mean, Diana brought her A-Game and kicked some butt! Steve and the others in the trenches back her up. It shows the side of mankind can come together to work as one to defeat a common enemy.

The villain, is actually unlikely. You will be surprised. It took me a bit to figure out Diana’s heritage, but it came together from that point. I think that Wonder Woman was well portrayed as an independent woman who can think for herself. Maybe she was the pioneer for feminism, but is that what the movie is about? No. It is about a coming of age young woman who seeks to make the world a better place by getting rid of the evil that is corrupting the mind of mankind. (and breathe), however, it got real so fast!

Chris Pine, I mean, come on. Who doesn’t love him? and if you don’t move on. His character, Steve Trevor, is such a realist. He kept Diana grounded, they were a good duo. He did believe in her. The last fight scene got me something fierce.
However, when you watch it, think about who the hero really is. Is it Diana or is it Steve?

Transformers Rise Of The Beast will definitely be a movie I’m going to watch repeatedly.



This was an epic movie overall. What else can I say without giving spoilers? Not a lot else, unfortunately, but I will try. So the start was interesting as it takes place in 1994, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts takes the audience on a globetrotting adventure with the Autobots and introduces a whole new faction of Transformers – the Maximals –  to join them as allies in the existing battle for Earth. There are quite a few hidden gems to look for. The humor in this one was excellent definitely the 90s were everywhere in this movie.

The action was awesome as a Transformers movie should be and it does have a decent storyline. The film also has Great references to the older Transformer properties as well. As a major fan of the beast war series, it was awesome to see that version of the universe brought to the big screen. However, there were some moments of eh, been done many times. But just a couple despite being another Transformers movie. but this one did give more life to the series for me to be intrigued to see where it goes. The movie is a good 2 hours long so it goes at a good pace.

But with that being the only bad thing, in my opinion, it is a great theater movie. I think it added some freshness to the franchise. That with a nice blend of the 90s nostalgia. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. This is Chris, an honest review writer until the next movie, see you next time.
